. >> the fbi is, has the lead in this investigation. the information, the best information and the best assessment we have today is that, in fact, this was not a preplanned, premeditated attack, that what happened initially was that it was a spontaneous reaction to what had just transpired in cairo as a consequence of the video. megyn: we are now awaiting a briefing from the state department on the anti-american protests rocking the middle east and the muslim world. you can bet this question will come up, but what will the state department say? it is now refusing all questions about what happened in libya because it claims an fbi investigation is underway, and it says you have to refer your questions to the justice department, but they won't talk to you either. we are going to have what we can learn from that briefing and catherine herridge whose reporting this is with more of this exclusive just ahead right here. >>> we are also getting new video, riots raging across the globe today, and as the anti-american protests spread beyond north africa and the middle east, it is posing a seriou
-- spblt for three weeks later. 20 days past the september 11th attacks and fbi isn't in benghazi, they're in tripoli, for security reasons they say, they say that the libyan security forces aren't providing them with security and some sort of visa problem. this is unheard of. so, senator bob corker and joe lieberman among others, they want answers from clapper about why it's happening. >> dave: to the point at that tony schaeffer made on our program yesterday, he's worked with the fbi, some of the toughest and highly technically trained individuals on the planet. comfortable going into hostile zones like benghazi, it must not be an internal reason, it must be someone else they can't go in. >> clayton: bee seeds the tactffac tactffac fact-- besides the fact that libya is a free country and not the hot son that-- as it's unfolding and discussions about james clapper on the show this morning, who is james clapper we'll taking a look at his record. he made headlines in 2010 when asked about that london terrorist attack by diane sawyer and appeared he didn't know what had happened or unfold
at present. first of all, there's an fbi investigation which is ongoing and we look to that investigation to give us the definitive word as to what transpired. but putting together the best information that we have available to us today, our current assessment is that what happened in benghazi was in fact initially a spontaneous reaction to what had just transpired hours before in cairo. almost a copycat of the demonstrations against our facility in cairo. which were prompted of course by the video. >> there's a caveat there, she said the fbi was still investigating. but the thought was it was a spontaneous reaction. a couple of days before that the libyan president said al qaeda was behind the attack. and days later, the president's spokesman, jay carney says this, it is, i think self-evident that what happened in benghazi was a terrorist attack. well if it was self-evident. then why didn't the president come out and call this exactly what it was, an act of terror on the anniversary of 9/11? >> well this is an event of great interest obviously to the public, to the news media. informatio
hoffa. one of the persistent questions. why is this shed and driveway? >> the f.b.i. has this case. of course, they have been searching for years for jimmy hoffa's body. it came up where somebody complained they saw or know of a body that was buried at that location. he gave a couple of names that were tied in with jimmy hoffa at the time when he disappeared. that was the reason for the search. either they had to search for a body or jimmy hoffa's body. that is the reason for this. >> heather: this location it's about 30 miles west of where he was last seen. you mentioned those names. they are associated with the house itself? >> i think they are. one of them -- i'm not sure if they are relatives or not. the person who made that allegation the f.b.i., i think those names were connected in some way. one of those names are probably the prime suspect of disappearance of jimmy hoffa. >> heather: what are investigators looking for in these soil samples. what do they hope to find? >> anything they can find. any kind of bone, body, dna anything to prove there is a body there. does the f.b

of treating it like it's a "law & order" issue, rather than a war on terrorism. they have sent the f.b.i. over who had to cool their heels for days before they could even get in there, and i don't know if they are in benghazi yet. but, you know, i heard yesterday about this journal that was found by -- of the ambassador, three days after the attack by a journalist walking through the compound. this is just lew ludicrous. on the face of it the way they are handling this is so incompetent, and treating it again like it's a "law & order" issue, they've sent the f.b.i. to investigate, like when they find out what is wrong are they going to try to arrest somebody in libya? bill: we'll be in touch with your office and find out what you find out. thank you for your time. i want to bring in senior brooks, a senior fellow for national security affairs. peter what is going on here. >> i have the same concerns that the chairman has, he just expressed, and he's probably better informed than i am. we see all of these loose treads on this narrative coming out of the white house. my sense at this point becau

the libyan government to make it possible for f.b.i. to go in and do forensic investigation. video, not like the administration was agnostic or neutral. they knew the cause. the cause was the stupid little video that some right wingish type allegedly made in america. they love to blame it on the video. that is what is shocking and offensive. if you get a little wrong, exactly what was spon stainous and planned, you don't know it at first. they love the idea this is caused only and entirely by the video. >> they talk about the first amendment as if it was a problematic, problem we've got. if it weren't for first amendment everything would be fine. ugly episode in public diplomacy. >> bret: next up, romney tape, obama tape. and aperience on letterman and the fall-out. we have look at that and the latest fox news polls.

the investigation. >> the team from the f.b.i. reached libya this week. iill advice congress also i am launching a accountability review board. that will be chaired by ambassador thomas pickerring. >> later in the day, members of congress briefed by clinton and the director of national intelligence on the assault by terrorists. >> they are attempting to establish whether he was kegged to people who made the attack. she a person of interest if you will. >> the story now has been changed. there was a planned premeditated attack. when we put our people around the world, at risk and don't provided a quite security. shame on us. >> the ambassador says the two seals killed in benghazi were there to protect them bass dore. >> two of the four americans were killed were there providing security. >> the two seals were in libya working for separate agency. they responded when they heard the gun fire and they killed themselves. >> bret: the decision to release gupta from gitmo was the bush administration. but the bigger story may be the presence of al-qaeda in libya and how strong they may be. >> what we ha
to know that there's an fbi investigation that has begun and it will take some time to be completed. that will tell us with certainty what transpired. but our current assessment, is that in fact what began as a spontaneous not a premeditated response to what had transpired in cairo, there was a violent protest that was undertaken in reaction to this video that was disseminated. we believe that folks in benghazi, a small number of people came to the consulate to replicate this sort of challenge that was posed in cairo and then as that unfolded, it seems to have been hijacked, let us say, by some individual clusters of extremists that came with heavier weapons, weapons as you know that, in the wake of the revolution in libya, are quite common and accessible. then it evolved from there. we'll wait to see exactly what the investigation finally confirms. but that's the best information that we have at present. >> why was there such a security breakdown, why wasn't there better security at the compound in benghazi? why weren't there u.s. marines in tripoli? >> first of all, we had substan
shows and say it was spontaneous. and they can't the fbi get into the benghazi site, and, why are we not in benghazi today? i think, president obama is enormously vulnerable on the point, because i think most americans today question whether we are going to be the world's sole superpower, five years from now or maybe three years from now but it is incumbent upon mitt romney to do the same thing in a way that netanyahu did at the u.n. with the chart. you know, the bomb and the 90% red line. he needs to tie it together. in a really visual way. what is the world going to look like and what will we live like if america is not the unquestioned superpower in the world? and how is the vulnerability translating to the lives of every day americans. does it matter? most people want america to be the strongest and want confidence on these issues. >> chris: juan? >> it is obviously taking place in a highly politicd season, in the run-up to the campaign but the timeline, susan rice when she spoke to you, chris gave you the best information she had at that time and what you see now, coming from th
the benghazi attack is totally off limits for west? this is something you need to talk to the. fbi about knot us about because it is their investigation, nuland said. ambassador susan rice appearing about all five sunday shows did not appear bound by the new rules. her comments around the benghazi attack diverted sharply from what senior libyan officials have been saying. >> the best information and best assessment we have today is that in fact this was not a preplanned, premeditated attack. what happened initially, it was a spontaneous reaction to what had transpired in cairo as a consequence of the video, that people gathered outside the embassy and then it grew very violent. those with extremist ties joined the fray and came with heavy weapons. >> the way these perpetrators acted and moved, i think we, their choosing their specific date for this so-called demonstration, i think we have no, this leaves us with no doubt that this is preplanned, predetermined. >> reporter: rice added that the situation around our embassies has been quote, somewhat better since friday but she added there is no
the fbi is trying to resolve is how and when they learned of the annex. glen daugherty and tyrone woods were killed there in an attack that was even better equipped and more sophisticated on the first wave. >> people on the ground have seen the fragments. the remains of the mortars and the heavy weapons that were used. >> we have made clear that there were armed assailants who used heavy weapons. >> i just don't think that people come to protest equipped with rpg's and other heavy weapons. >> president obama was first briefed about the benghazi attack about 90 minutes after it began. what has emerged since then, however, from the missed opportunities to redress the inadequate security to the deaths involved and the geopolitical ramifications of the event up to and including the shifting accounts of it put forward by the administration is the dawn of a major foreign policy scandal. one, alisyn, dave, and clayton, that will be investigated and dissected in hearings and official proceedings for years to come. back to you guys in new york. >> will it be an issue now with 45 days left before
